HOW IT PLAYED OUT | WESG winners

Back-to-back Champs

After that unforgettable seven-hour marathon grand final at the IEM World Championships in Katowice, the CS:GO team went straight to Haikou, China to compete for the World Electronic Sport Games.

We started out the qualifiers way back in October, but it all culminated against the Turkish outfit, Space Soldiers on Sunday.

The task to win two straight maps was given to us after dropping Cobblestone. It took us overtime on Inferno to get to Mirage. We then went 14-7 down.

But, as tournament MVP, Freddy 'Krimz' Johansson, so eloquently put it:

"We gathered our energy played some damn good CS."

2-0 to round out EULCS

We'd banked our ticket to the Royal Arena, Copenhagen already last week. Our two wins against Giants and Schalke 04 were for pride and a comfortable 14-4 record at the top of the league.

Gabriël 'Bwipo' Rau impressed once again as Paul 'sOAZ' Boyer's substitute in top lane against Giants as he gained some crucial stage time ahead of the rest of 2018.

Two more Gfinity wins

It was the week of the Super Subs at the Gfinity Elite Series.

Two FIFA subs - Conran 'Rannerz' Tobin and Rasmus 'Ralle' Nyström - two wins. Two Rocket League subs - Petr 'Lauty' Lauterkranc and Leo 'hell0' Michel - a 3-1 win.

A Dota Marathon

We didn't pick up more Dota Pro Circuit at the GESC Indonesia Minor, but it took an epic 189 minutes for Na'Vi to take us down 3-1.

The highs, trials and tribulations got to all of us, but we move on and try for even better at DreamLeague this weekend!
